Gossip: A Joyful Noise

Just listening to the stream of of the latest Gossip album, A Joyful Noise, via the Guardian website and first impressions are not good. Intrigued by Beth's comment she has been listening to a lot of ABBA, I clicked on the first track and was met by bland, tuneless flannel. And on it went. Only "Get a Job" seemed to have some melody. The rest were over-produced and characterless. What has happened to this band?

man oh man this trio is rad. they do it unlike anyone else... edgy hip-hoppy pop. Beth ditto is tight, i wish more musicians were like her and didn't give a s*** about people or anything. This group inspires me to continue being ME every single day and to not change for anyone. New album in just a few days now.. woohoo!
